Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc. was established in 1978 by Scott and Andy Gerlach. While attending Ohio State University, Scott and Andy were cleaning carpets part time to make ends meet. At the time they were cleaning with a portable machine (like the kind you can rent now) and the truck powered machine had just come to market. After seeing the incredible results this machine performed, they decided to launch Gerlach Cleaning Systems, Inc.
From the beginning, Scott and Andy realized the value of an IICRC education and certification. Scott and Andy immersed themselves in attending continuing education classes, studying cleaning magazines, manuals, and networking with other professionals in the Central Ohio area. As a result, Scott and Andy, along with their exceptional staff, began to solve many of the difficult cleaning concerns for carpet retailers, designers, and homeowners. Over the years, Scott, Andy, and their exceptional staff have continued to build the company through education, customer service, and quality work.
